So I guess they're not aware that mirrors reflect things??

Are bathroom doors optional in some homes?

Well she is exhausted after finding all the lavender. Matching is so tiring!

ShortWoman said...

Gee, I wonder if she likes purple flowers.

Fermina said...

Oh, good one! The reflected "Reclining Lady" matches the painting in the dining room...and of course the flowers match in each room...and the lavender. snort.

ha. I love that painting though. anyone know more about it? I had it on a notecard from an ex and I want to display it because it's so lovely but...

Washwords: this is that painting. I believe Wikipedia covers enough buzz about it.

Hey, Washwords, it's a painting named "Flaming June" by Leighton. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flaming_June. They have a really nice version of it on stretched canvas on overstock.com. http://www.overstock.com/Home-Garden/Flaming-June-by-Leighton-Stretched-Canvas-Artwork/1893637/product.html

Looks like that bathroom also has a toilet closet with an actual door, but yeah it seems like there's just an archway there. Once I lived in a townhouse where the owner had removed the master bedroom door because it was "just her" there. My first thought, naturally, was "that's all well and convenient, but what if you have a foul bowel movement?". Crazy.

Anyways, I thought this was a neat coincidence with the mirror and painting, if it was a coincidence. More of this needs to be intentionally inserted into listings.

my brother in law and his wife used to live in a house with no door to the master bathroom. i thought that it was really weird. i also thought about foul odors.

I'm still basking in the "GRANDURE!!"* of it all.


* = (by "GRANDURE!!", they mean arsty-looking stuff bought at the Galt Flea Market)

At least it's not reflectoporn.

Ahh, finally something I have some authority to speak on, because I have a house with a master bath without a door, and I also have foul bowel movements. You have to have a little closet for the actual business. I makes it nice to not have to worry about intruding when you just want to brush your teeth. The window in the closet takes care of the ventilation, and the door there allows you to examine what you have made in private.

What a weird listing. No pics of the FIVE bedrooms (other than via reflection), but we get two pics of that painting, including one that's basically JUST the painting & some flowers. Whuh?? Also, oy, did a fourth grader write this? (no offense to fourth graders with decent writing skills): "You going to enjoy every sunset", "...a view money can't buy buy we will let you have it for a song" (yay! I can sing, but I have no money- what a great way to get a house!), and that last agonizingly long run-on sentence. Sheesh.

Wow this definitely took me a minute to get.. then I did and I lol'ed a lot.
